- The material you submit may be seen by various people. We may enter the information you send into our electronic database to share with web administrators, web authors, and support personnel in order to improve our web site's performance and usefullnes.
In other limited circumstances, including requests from Congress or private individuals, we may be required by law to disclose information you submit.
- Also, e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes personal information like your social security number, you might want to send it by postal mail instead
unless you use the our e-mail form and not 'mailto: addressing' links that utilize normal e-mail channels.
|Our e-mail form formats the mail on our web server using
secure socket layer (SSL) technology then sends the message via the SMTP Server that is running on the web server to the our Exchange Server which is on the same network. Therefore, the chance of unauthorized eyes intercepting the message are extremely small.
One problem with problem using secure socket layer (SSL) technology is that
only version 4.x browsers allow you to accept our server certificate because earlier versions of browsers only allow certificates from Root Authorities that were in existance when those browsers were created.
NOTE: If you send messages using a free e-mail service, you will not receive our response if your mailbox is full. Messages sent to full mailboxes are returned to us as "undeliverable".
